Pattern Update :: Big Poke

This year, I’ll be updating some of my old patterns with new fancy PDF layout and cleaning up the older patterns and standardizing the formats…

The first of the old patterns to be updated is Big Poke! Fixed a few few minor things that I have changed in it since I’ve made it many times since writing the original pattern. The PDF is fancied up too. I listened to those worried about too much graphic and made it nice and clean with just some pops of color.

Retiring Patterns :: Who’s on the Chopping Block?

My pattern shop is full of patterns! I love that, it’s a story of the progress of my job over the last 8 years. I can see the history of Roxycraft every time I look at it…and what a history it has been!

But here’s the thing, some of them are from my early days and they are not my best work, or my favorite…and more importantly, not your’s either! They aren’t selling anymore. They have outlived their usefulness.

I feel like my work is so much better now, my “look” is refined and I’ve learned so much about writing patterns now too (stitch counts, hello!). I feel like they aren’t representations of my current work.

So, I have made the hard choice to retire a good amount of my patterns this weekend. I thought about re-writing them…but the amount of work involved…I just don’t have the time.

So here is a list of the patterns making their graceful exit on February 1st, 2013.

I have recently switched shopping cart systems and you can download these patterns instantly if you’d like a copy before they go away. BTW…they will still be available in my “All Roxycraft Patterns” Collection. (Which is price reduced to $40 now and available for instant download too!)

I’ll be uploading the new pattern shop page on Feb 1st guys! So get em while you can!colorlogocart

Etsy :: And the Winner is…

Big Poke!!!

It seemed at first that it was a tie between Big Poke and Rainbow Butie…but last minute, Big Poke took a huge lead!

So I have added two purchase slots to my etsy shop for now. The price is $40. The finished doll is large at 12″ from head to tail. It stands nearly 9″ tall…very cuddly!

There are a few color options, so check them out. If there is a different color combo you’d prefer, convo me!
